Your Summer Checklist
Here are a few things you should consider before summer arrives:
1. Maintain Your Air Conditioning System
One of the first things that you think of when it comes to getting your home prepared for summer is the air conditioner. Our Staten Island summers are hot, long, and humid. You need an air conditioner to keep you as cool as possible.
We have a fantastic maintenance program here at our company. If you’d like to have maintenance performed in your home, then we think it’s a great idea to take that next step and enroll in our maintenance plan. Maintenance is what’s responsible for keeping your home cool, efficient, and your HVAC system long-lasting. Don’t skip it!
2. Consider Upgrading the AC System
There comes a time where you’re going to need to upgrade your air conditioner. An air conditioner can last about 10 to 15 years. You should have a plan for an upgrade when the air conditioner reaches the 10-year mark. Upgrades don’t need to be difficult or too extensive.
3. Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
Your home’s indoor air quality also has a lot of the responsibility for keeping you cool. You can come to us for the following:
- Duct testing
- Duct sealing
- Air filters
- Air purifiers
- ERV systems
- HRV systems
If you’re not sure what system you need for your home, we’re here to help you make the decision. Your indoor air quality is important for your home’s efficiency and your health. Don’t discount it.
4. Don’t Forget Your Water Heater
We know that primetime for your water heater is typically winter. Who would want to take a cold shower during a New York winter after all? Your water heater is still important in summer. Summer weather can exacerbate your current water heater problems. If you notice issues, we can help you get past them as soon as possible.
5. Make Sure Your Plumbing Is Ready
Your plumbing system needs maintenance as well. You can schedule an appointment with us for plumbing maintenance. If you want to take some measures to protect your home, just invest in a few drain strainers. Putting one of these over the drain in the bathroom and one in the kitchen will help you prevent debris from entering the drains. You don’t want your plumbing to take a nosedive during the summer season. The warm weather will only exacerbate the stench that’s often associated with plumbing problems.
